In this book, the first to be published in the United States in thirty-one years, Peter Downsbrough gives the black vertical band a width of one inch (2.54 cm). The use of relatively thin paper gives additional visibility to the complex interplay of entire words and half words, thin horizontal lines, the solid black bands and their outlined blank counterparts in a subtle way.
